    I think the Edge is here to stay. Only things I'm looking for is the decision about the battery being removable or not and glass back or not. If it's glass and sealed I'll pass on this one too.

    I really don't think I want an edge device. I think IF they have an edge it will be an option like the S6 and S7

    I think the edged devices are like an s pen. Those that use it find it invaluable but those that don't are "meh" about it or even adversarial about it. To me an edge would probably just end up being used as another dock area like multi window has been relegated to on my Notes.

    I use the S Pen and it's about the sole reason for me going with the Note series. I just think that the way I use my pen would be inhibited by the edge design.

    I will wait for it the hit the market and get my hands on it.

    Had they had the Note4 edge available when I got my Note4 I'd have gone with it for the cool factor but agree it is something I'm fine without, unlike the s pen.

    I don't think Samsung will release two phones this time ...I'm thinking it will be 5.8 with edge features and Spen ...although it's in testing might not have been decided yet..I'm looking forward to it ..

    Btw I saw a Note 5 running ported S7 edge features it's promising ...lots of options useful

    The developer support will determine whether it becomes a useful norm or something that's just there and doesn't get used, like the s pen for many and multi window for even more. As long as it doesn't mess up the ergonomics of holding the phone I am in support of it being edged if there's only 1 choice (edge or no edge)

    The Edge design sold better than Sammy expected. I think we will see an N6 Edge.

    I don't care for the Edge, but could probably get used to it. I just want to get the note 6 very soon. I skipped my upgrade waiting for this phone to come out. Hurry Sammy!!.

    I really wanted the Note 4 edge and I think it sold well but a little hard to know how well it would have done had they not limited production. I would definitely go for a N6 edge.
